Northeast US weather

Clouds and chill to dominate from Maryland to Maine until Tuesday night

After a fine day Saturday, most of the Middle Atlantic and Northeast faced a dreary, drippy, dull, drab and dim day for Mother Day. The satellite picture shows how extensive the cloudiness was.


The following mao shows the GFS-predicted rainfall from Sunday through early Friday. About or more than half of the eastern rain had already fallen by sundown on Sunday


So when do the clouds depart? When will the region have its next sunny, warm day? It appears both of those events will not occur simultaneously. The clearing should occur Tuesday night and sunshine should accompany a warmup Wednesday. There is some hint that an area of temporary clearing will move from central Maryland to the middle of Pennsylvania on Tuesday.


Another patch of clouds and some showers can move through the region on Thursday, but it now appears the weekend may include a sunny Saturday.
